Abbot Kinney Boulevard information
Kinney would probably be delighted to find that one of Venice’s best-loved streets bears his name. Sort of a seaside Melrose with a Venetian flavor, the mile-long stretch of Abbot Kinney Blvd between Venice Blvd and Main St is full of upscale boutiques, galleries, lofts, and sensational restaurants.
In late September, the Abbot Kinney Festival draws thousands of revelers, as does the now-institutionalized First Friday art walk, when the galleries and shops stay open late and you’ll roam all night with the tramps, hippies, weirdos, fashionistas, yuppies and squares.
